An initiation ceremony gone wrong.
As anticipation builds toward her initiation, Cristiane Bradford faces disappointment as High Priestess Sarah Killian refuses to admit her into the coven. Shocked, Cristiane learns that her mother is a practicing witch. Until the coven leader is convinced Cristiane is not involved in her mother's dark magic and cult activities, she is not welcome.

Witches. Demons. Ghosts.
Devastated but determined, Cristiane pursues the truth, leading her to uncover ancient demons and haunting ghosts connected to her mother's past. A new witch with limited abilities, Cristiane struggles as she must face powerful adversaries. Cristiane's anxiety works on her emotions and toys with her confidence. She turns to her old friends for support, and meets new ones that fill her with hope, until it all comes crashing down around her. Left alone and distraught, she has no one to rely on but herself when faced with Lamashtu's spirit. Will she prevail over the evil that surrounds her?

Can Cristiane learn the truth without destroying her family? And will she survive as she battles creatures of the dark?

Cristine Bradford was upset about not being admitted into a coven of witches led by High Priestess Sarah Killian. All due to her mother being suspected of practicing black magic with a cult. So the young woman goes looking for the truth, a truth she will find is more frightening than she could even suspect.

Halloween is coming and fall is the time to read spooky stories. Secrets of Mother has a strong female character, plus other interesting characters, witches, demons, evil cultists, and even romance making this book fit the bill nicely.

I gave Secrets of Mother 5 sheep.
